Stitch Head

The Pirate's Eye

by Guy Bass
Illustrated by Pete Williamson

Mad Professor Erasmus has long forgotten his first creation, Stitch Head, leaving the lonely patchwork monster to take care of Castle Grotteskew all by himself. But when the professor is kidnapped by crusty pirates, Stitch Head decides to risk his almost-life to save his creator. He'll need a little help from his new friends, the Creature and Arabella, to learn to embrace his inner pirate and sail the seven seas in pursuit of his missing mentor.

NetGalley Review - Janice Hunsche, Kaleidosaurus Books (Metamora, IN)

"I can't wait to read more books in this series. The adventures are fun, the monsters so nice and gentle, and the bad guy, Fulbert Freakfinder, is dastardly but inept. Just the right sort of scares for early chapter book readers." - NetGalley Review

San Francisco Book Reveiw - Janessa, Age 16

"There is something about Stitch Head that is irresistible in a macabre sort of way. Fans of Emily the Strange and Tim Burton will like Stitch Head instantly and the writing style and book layout will draw in a wide range and age of readers with its unique formatting that includes illustrations, distinct chapter layouts, as well as each page given the appearance of antiquity." - San Francisco Book Reveiw

Sharon the Librarian blog - Sharon Tyler

"The Pirate's Eye is a wonderful follow up to Stitch Head. The characters of the creature, Stitch Head, the professor, Arabella, and all of the other main players are further fleshed out, and there is plenty of adventure. . . .I think children that like to read books that are a little different, or a little dark, with adventure and charm will enjoy this series." - Sharon the Librarian blog
